HOLA Member Bochinche

Bochinche refers to "gossip." In this sense, we use it to mention HOLA members or Friends of HOLA who are getting acting, performance or similarly artistic gigs and/or recognition in the media. The names of HOLA members and Friends of HOLA are listed below in boldface.

Éric-Dominique Pérez, shown at left, and Iván Camilo, shown at right, nabbed roles in an industrial for Yale University after the casting director saw their headshots and resumes on their respective profiles in the HOLA online directory and contacted them. In addition, Pérez will present his self-penned solo show El Gringuito on Saturday, March 9, 2013 at HERE Arts Center (located in Manhattan's SoHo neighborhood) as part of the Downtown Urban Theater Festival. The show will be directed by A.B. Lugo and assistant directed by Billy Martín Mejía. For more information, click here, here or here.
